Whew! That was a hard one to figure out! This recipe was adapted from an Ocean Spray recipe in the Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine.. It originally called for cranberries, but I thought using dates sounded much better. Dates are delicious, and they remind me of my grandmother 🙂
2/3 c butter or margarine, softened
2/3c brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 c old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
6oz of chopped dates (or if cranberries sound better to you, 6oz dried cranberries)
2/3c white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375*.
Beat butter and sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mix well.
Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt into a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture in thirds. Mix well after each third is added. Stir in dates (or cranberries) and white chocolate chips.
Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
